It was the final evening I would have to hunt this season…I had taken my oldest son Caleb (9) and he was supposed to be the shooter. A full belly and a snowy afternoon got the best of him however, and he decided to lay down in the blind and take a nap. Not more than hour later I heard hooves in the water and crunching ice. The windows on that side of the blind were closed so I couldn’t see it yet but it was close…maybe 20 yds. I reached down and vigorously patted my son. He didn’t stir. Then I shook his shoulder, but he still wouldn’t wake up. With the deer so close I couldn’t speak. So that was that. Out came the spike and turned broadside at 15 yds. I recognized him right away. I had passed him twice in bow season…but I was out of time, and he was out of chances. My son and I had a great time field dressing him and dragging him out of the woods. I asked my son what lesson he had learned…he said…”Don’t sleep on stand, and I need caffeine pop!” A great day! Memories made and meat in the freezer. 2018 is in the books.

Took a break from writing my PhD dissertation to hunt with my husband. I was fortunate enough to harvest my very first deer during my third season of deer hunting. This buck was the 11th deer we saw that morning. Very special hunt that I will never forget!

First Michigan Archery buck that I’ve taken in 12+ years. I took this buck with my Mathews Creed & Swhacker 100gr. broad heads @ about 10 yards. Special thanks to my hunting partner, friend, and father for helping me get him out of the woods.

First buck and first U.P. deer! Had him come in with a spike who had been chasing a couple of does, stopped him with a quick whistle and made a great shot at about 75 to 80yrds! It was an amazing experience that I will remember for the rest of my life!
